Do you ever feel like children and teens start school a little too late in the day (9am)? Simmers like you and me pay attention to details and want change, but can't find a mod for it anywhere.

So... I whipped this up and I am pretty satisfied.

How a school day works?

Both children and teens attend school at the same time (8am) (bus 7am). On every school day your children\teens will wake up at 6am just an hour before to get ready for the bus pick up. If they miss the bus or you don't want them to take the bus because you feel being at school an hour early is too early (I agree), it's ok, you have until 8am until actual class starts.

Children (elementary) and teens (high school) dismiss from school at different times (teens get out an hour early, which is default by EA). Children dismiss school at 3pm while teens dismiss school at 2pm. This means a full 8 hours of school for children and 7 hours for teens instead of 5 hours for teens and 6 hours for children.

What are the hours for teachers?

I did not change the hours for every education career level. I only changed the hours for teachers. Any education career level with "Teacher" in it's title will all attend work and dismiss from work at the same hours (7am-4pm).

I made it so that teachers will be at school an hour earlier than all students; unless your children\teens rode the bus. Teachers will still be doing their job when all the students dismiss. I imagine it as meetings and planning the next school day.

This means teachers dismiss work 1 hour after children dismiss and 2 hours after teens dismiss.

If you are having problems with the original mod I have an alternative version, which you will have to install a different way. For this to work you will need all expansion packs since this is coming from my own game. My original file only requires Ambitions and Generations. Back up your GameplayData file! Read the instructions beside the file before downloading!

* Created and tested with patch 1.69 and should work with patch 1.67 (not sure about anything before that so use at your own risk)

* Conflicts *

This mod is a XML file and shouldn't conflict with any other mod except "School Tuning-Detention, Start Times, and Sleeping in Class" created by van Dorn

* Ask Questions *

Don't be afraid to ask questions and let me know if you experience any issues. I will be glad to help.
